The Little Mermaid has always been one of my favorite animated Disney films. Something about Ariel gave her a place in my heart right away. Not to mention, Ursula is one of my favorite villains, and you know I love me some villains. My girls love this story too, so when The Little Mermaid was released with new bonus features for its 30th Anniversary (I feel so old), we were thrilled Disney sent us a copy!
Ralph Breaks The Internet hits theaters a little later this month (November 21st) and we are over the moon excited! I was lucky enough to see it earlier this week and it is SO GOOD! I will have a full review coming soon, so stay tuned, but let me just say this is something for the whole family. It is hilarious, but also has some heartfelt moments and it totally made me cry. Which OK, that is not hard to do but still. To help celebrate this film, I am giving you some awesome printable coloring pages and activity sheets!
If you have been checking my site out for a while now, than you know my young daughters love the Disney Junior show PJ Masks. Oh, sorry, they LOVE PJ Masks. My youngest has a backpack, lunchbox, and tons of clothes that are themed with that show. She even had a PJ Masks birthday party one year (and asks to again every year since!). So when a giant box filled with PJ Masks Halloween goodies showed up at our door, she screamed and ran around in circles. I totally wish I had it on video.
Every summer we go to the local Renaissance Faire. It is something we look forward to all year long, but this year, we decided to keep the fun going by creating one at home. Here are a few things you can do to create your own Renaissance Faire at home.
My girls are starting to read books on their own now, so we have been collecting a lot of new ones. Ones with harder words, but words that they can still figure out on their own. The book Fiona the Hippo was sent to us this month and quickly became one of my 7 year old’s favorites! There are no exceptionally hard words, and at this point it is memorization for her. She just loves sitting down with her little sister and reading to her! This is the perfect book for young readers.
Disney’s Christopher Robin hits theaters next weekend and you KNOW I will be sitting in the theater with my family opening weekend. I grew up loving Winnie the Pooh and all his friends from 100 Acre Wood. In fact, when I had my first daughter, we decorated her nursery fully in Winnie the Pooh decor – complete with murals on the walls. Something about these characters really tugs at my heart strings. As you can see in my reaction video below, the extended sneak peek even got me a little teary. “Silly old bear” did me in. To help celebrate Christopher Robin, print your own coloring pages and activities. Give your kids hours of fun with Winnie the Pooh & his friends!
One of my favorite times with my daughters is story time. From the moment they were born, I would cuddle them and read to them. Well, times are now changing in the Smith household as both girls are reading to me at story time. Sure, I help out with a few words here and there, but they do the majority of the reading, all thanks to I Can Read books. I would be lying if I said it doesn’t make me tear up every now and then. Them reading to me just proves that they are growing up, something I thought I was ready for, but I am not. For a chance to win I Can Read! books of your own, make sure you check out my giveaway at the end of the post.
